Should Las Lomitas school board seek a parcel tax increase? How much?

Original post made by David Boyce on Nov 14, 2006

Trustees of the Las Lomitas School District say the district needs a parcel tax increase of $200 a year to avoid program cuts. But a recent survey in the district shows voters won't provide the two-thirds approval necessary for any increase above $98 a year.

The current annual tax per parcel is $196.

On Wednesday, November 15, the school board meets at 7:30 p.m. to discuss the issue and perhaps make a decision about putting a parcel tax measure on the ballot next March.
